December 7, 2009, 10:42 am (8 years ago)
Apparently, the case with Senator Harry Reid might please the online casinos as his rating of approval is going down by the day in Nevada. His incapability to satisfy Nevada residents is pleasing the members within the online casino business.
Reid has been one of the key enemies for new legislation that would cancel the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act. Reid represents the largest casino gambling state in the US, and he is paying attention to their best interests.
However, not all of the land-based casino owners are on his side. Harrah's Entertainment, one of the biggest gaming companies in the world, has recently taken an action to get ready for online gambling regulations.
Harrah's has started up their online casino, but still has not allowing players from the US to access. If the UIGEA is going to be overturn, Harrah’s is more than ready to open its door to US players. Representative Barney Frank is encouraging legislation to regulate online gambling in the country.
